Football: Alonso 21, King 7

TAMPA — Alonso defeated King 21-7 Friday night, thanks in large part to an impressive rushing performance by junior Ish Witter. Witter carried the ball 33 times for 196 yards and two touchdowns — all while sick.

"I felt really sick during the game and it was hard for me to breathe, but I wanted to still perform well for our team," Witter said.

It was all Alonso early, leading 14-0 at halftime. The Ravens added another score in the third on a 21-yard TD scamper by Witter.

King finally found the end zone late in the third on an 8-yard run by Kenyatta Walker — its first score in its last six quarters played.

"The defense played great tonight and Ish was outstanding," Alonso coach Brian Emanuel said. "For him to be sick and still perform the way that he did, that just shows how special he is.
